Closing 2009 With The Mobile Spoon Top Stories


2009 is about to end and since I'm so bad in saying goodbyes, I decided to dedicate this post to the year that included so many fascinating mobile news.

I checked what were the most popular stories this year here at the Mobile Spoon, and included some of the highlights of 2009.

So here are your favorite MobileSpoon stories for 2009!

Beginning right away!

Samsung Omnia Thoughts


One of our favorite Windows Mobile phones for 2009 was the Samsung Omnia. The Omnia got a nice set of reviews and general thoughts, all of them are labeled as Samsung Omnia Thoughts.

Of course, Omnia was not the only phone we reviewed this year, among others we played around with the HTC Touch HD, HTC Touch HD2, iPhone 3G, BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Storm, Touch Pro, Touch Pro2, Android T-Mobile G1, and others,

Here are our favorite smartphones reviews:

Review- One Night Stand With HTC HD2
Review- HTC Touch Pro 2
The Truth About The BlackBerry Bold
Review - One night stand with BlackBerry Storm
HTC Touch HD Thoughts - Part #1
HTC Touch Pro is in the house!

And as usual, each smartphone got a chance to take part of a super hero theme such as the following:

MobileSpoon-BlackBerry-Bold MobileSpoon-Silver-iPhone
MobileSpoon-BlackBerry-Storm MobileSpoon-Droid

All of those reviews and experiences also helped in creating the ultimate post that always starts a fight: The War of the Phones:

Yes, definitely one of the most popular topics here, at least for the first half of 2009 was SPB's Mobile Shell. We got a chance to be one of the first sites to post a review about it, which made it a popular page in our site, referenced by many other sites as well.

That's it for 2009. Time to move on to 2010, throw away our old phones, talk to Google so they start sending us Android phones, say goodbye to Palm, and hope for a good year with good news, happiness, health and a lot of technology breakthroughs.
